Shauna Duggins (‘Glow’) on stunts being ‘a crucial part of every story’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
Stunt coordinator Shauna Duggins won her first Emmy last year for “Glow,” making her the first woman to do so. She is now nominated again for Season 2 of the Netflix comedy, which featured major moments like Debbie (Betty Gilpin) breaking Ruth’s (Alison Brie) ankle, the over-the-top “Good Twin” episode and the epic battle royale in the finale. Through it all, Duggins is training actresses who don’t have much stunt experience into genuine stunt performers. “I know what the girls put into training every year to get to the point to shoot on them. To be recognized for that is an honor,” Duggins says. Watch our exclusive video interview with Duggins above.

For Duggins, a “Glow” season is all about teaching and reworking stunts for 15 different actresses, ensuring their safety while also pushing them to greatness. “As we get the scripts, we’re constantly adjusting

Terry Crews & Guy Fieri Go Fishing for Roles in The Little Mermaid Remake

As if you didn't know, casting for Disney's upcoming live-action remake of their classic 1989 animated movie The Little Mermaid is underway with recent addition Halle Bailey as Ariel. Awkwafina as Scuttle, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, and Jacob Tremblay as Flounder have all been discussed but aren't currently confirmed. Today we have word that Terry Crews and Guy Fieri want to throw their hats into the underwater ring as well for the roles of King Triton and Ursula the Sea Witch.

You can go ahead and check out both Terry Crews' and Guy Fieri's Twitter posts below if you don't believe me!

While sadly Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives host Guy Fieri is joking about his casting as Ursula, I genuinely think The Ridiculous 6 and Sorry to Bother You star Terry Crews would make a killer King Triton. If, you know, The Dark Tower and Hobbs & Shaw actor Idris Elba isn't up for the part.

Cannes at the Halfway Point: How Did Elton John Become King of the Fest?

Cannes at the Halfway Point: How Did Elton John Become King of the Fest?
It wasn’t hard to figure out who the guest of honor was when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences threw a Cannes Film Festival cocktail party on Friday night. Sure, the guests included studio heads and a number of notable filmmakers from the indie and documentary worlds — but the guy everybody wanted to talk to or be photographed with was Dexter Fletcher, who the night before had premiered his Elton John musical “Rocketman” at the festival to a lengthy standing ovation.

Mainstream commercial movies aren’t guaranteed winners at Cannes, which can be a snobbish place and has turned up its nose at the likes of “Robin Hood,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “The Bfg” in the past. But the thoroughly pleasing “Rocketman” was a home run for Fletcher and for Paramount Pictures, and a love fest for its subject. As the festival comes

She has also won leading role Goyas for Volver and The Girl Of Your Dreams.

We’ve got a new trailer to share with you for Terry Gilliam’s long-awaited fantasy adventure film, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. This is a passion project of his that he’s been working on trying to get made for the past 25 years.

Former DC artist claims Justice League’s budget ballooned to $650 million

Despite earning $658 million worldwide, Warner Bros.DC superhero ensemble Justice League proved to be a major bust for the studio – one that led to a major shake-up and DC Films and a rethinking of the entire DC movie strategy.

Now, you may be asking yourself how a movie with box office receipts of $658 million can be described as a “major bust”, but – if some comments from former DC comic book artist Ethan Van Sciver are accurate – it may have something to do with Warner Bros. having pumped $650 million into the production.

“The Justice League movie was a catastrophic disaster for Warner Bros and for DC, for the Dceu,” claims Van Sciver (via Cbm). “What happened was, it was underway with a $350 million budget under Zack Snyder…Decisions were made to have Joss Whedon come in and finish the movie.

‘Mary Poppins Returns’: Emily Blunt Explains Why ‘I Am Not Julie Andrews’

‘Mary Poppins Returns’: Emily Blunt Explains Why ‘I Am Not Julie Andrews’
Anyone expecting too many spoonfuls of sugar in “Mary Poppins Returns,” Disney’s $130-million sequel to the Julie Andrews Disney classic set 25 years later in depression era London, will be disappointed. That’s because Emily Blunt, who reunited with her “Into the Woods” director Rob Marshall, returns some edge to the character created by British author P.L. Travers back in the 30s. “I get her,” Marshall said of Blunt. “I find her quick and clever; I knew she’d find her own way heading back to the books of refining this eccentric character.”

Mary Poppins in the books “was terribly funny,” Blunt told me. “For sure, the vanity and humor is there, but she’s not very sunny. She’s odd.”

Blunt’s Mary Poppins falls somewhere between the weird book character and Julie Andrews’ cheery 1964 creation. It helps to love the original movie because Marshall — who began his Broadway

Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Will Get a U.S. Theatrical Release in 2019

Terry Gilliam has been to hell and back multiple times on his journey to make his passion project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. The last we heard, Gilliam had lost the rights to the film and we had no idea if it would ever get released, especially after Amazon dropped it.

Film editor Wyatt Smith admits that working on “Mary Poppins Returns” was “a little daunting” and “a little scary to be honest because you’re treading on sacred ground.” The 1964 original is “one of the most beloved, perfect movies ever made that’s stood the test of time over 50 years.” Suffice it to say that the stakes were high for this sequel.

Star Wars: Episode IX Set Pic Revealed To Be A Fake

While the recent array of photos we’ve been seeing from the set of Star Wars: Episode IX have proven to be a welcome alternative source of info to the endless stream of rumors and speculation, it’s worth remembering that even pics can be misleading.

A couple of days ago, the photo of a partially constructed set of overgrown ruins started circulating online, leading some fans to speculate that this could be the site for an abandoned Jedi temple, or a new, secluded place for The Resistance to set up their base. Unfortunately, such theories proved premature, as it’s now been shown that this image was actually taken from the set of 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Admittedly, the pic had us fooled, and to take this swampy photo from a film that no one’s watched or thought about for seven years was a well-judged feat of fakery.

Gemma Ward Has "Allure"

Sneak Peek new images of actress Gemma Ward ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides") in the October 2018 issue of "Allure" magazine, photograaphed by Nicolas Kantor:

"As a model you do play a certain role and you know as an actor you play another role," said Ward.

"It's hard if you start believing that you should be really that perfect fantasy ideal. You can delve into that fantasy world and play with it, but when you walk away, that's not you.

"As a child, I was a clown. I didn't hesitate to make a fool of myself and I would love to completely take on wacky characters. 

"To make my brothers and my sister laugh was the greatest joy to me in my life. I like people who can make fun of themselves a lot..."

All 5 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)

All 5 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies may be coming at a slow pace these days, but they still are coming. How does the Javier Bardem-starring fifth flick stack up among the other entries in the mixed-bag franchise?

5. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

At some point, “from the Academy Award-winning director of ‘Chicago'” meant something. But Rob Marshall was woefully ill-suited to make a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, and that, combined with whoever’s terrible idea it was to have Jack Sparrow as the sole lead, spelled doom for this horrifically awful experience.

4. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pretty much just an attempt to rehash the original movie, though it’s less satisfying in every way. Not horrible, and it does have the decency to be the shortest of the five movies. But its incoherence undoes most of the goodwill granted by the occasional clever dialogue.

MoviePass, Diversity and Just Good Films Led to Sizzling Summer Box Office

MoviePass, Diversity and Just Good Films Led to Sizzling Summer Box Office
Last summer season spawned one apocalyptic headline after another to deliver a singular message: the box office was the worst it had been in over a decade.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” kicked off popcorn season in 2017 with a promising start. From there, things quickly took a turn for the worse. Aside from “Wonder Woman,” “Spider-Man Homecoming,” and “Dunkirk,” the movie industry suffered a string of flops across the next four months that resulted in a 14.6% drop from the previous season. Summer is synonymous with big-budget action flicks and superhero tentpoles. So why couldn’t last year deliver? Analysts pointed to unwarranted sequels from tired franchises for failing to fill theaters.

Fast forward to 2018, and a number of overperforming blockbusters have propelled the box office up 13.6%, according to comScore. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” and “Deadpool 2” are just a few titles that proved franchise fatigue doesn

Exclusive Interview – Mark “Rhino” Smith talks Idris Elba’s Yardie and the relationship between bodybuilding and acting

Red Stewart chats with Mark “Rhino” Smith…

Mark “Rhino” Smith is an English bodybuilder turned actor who has been working in the television and film industries since the late-90s. He is best known for his roles in Gladiators, Renford Rejects, and The Last Ship. His latest work was for the upcoming British crime drama movie Yardie, which was helmed by Idris Elba in his directorial debut.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to interview him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

I’ve noticed a lot of bodybuilders over the decades have transitioned into the film industry, from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Lou Ferrigno to David Prowse. Is there something about the craft that makes acting a natural development in your career, or is it simply a case of having the right height/weight for the role, as I recall Liam Neeson saying in an interview with Peter Travers?
